A surprising update came late last night when it was reported that New York Mets relief pitcher Brooks Raleigh was pulled from the Team USA Baseball Classic roster.

New York Mets say Brooks Raleigh has a low hamstring strain:

The Mets just shared that Raley snapped yesterday as a result of some tightness he was feeling in his left hamstring. Raleigh has a low-grade hamstring strain. The Mets announced that Raleigh would return to Port St. Lucie to join the Mets for spring training and that they would have more information on his future status.

Andy Martino of SNY stated that the Mets would get an update “before long”. He also said that this injury was “not serious enough” for the Mets to chase a left-handed reliever. So, maybe, some good news there.

The Mets made a deal in this offseason to acquire Raley to help their office which was a major concern a year ago. Raleigh is coming off a career year in which he posted a 2.68 ERA in 60 games. He recorded 61 strikeouts in 53.2 innings pitched.

Raley is set to be instrumental in the 2023 Mets bullpen as the best left-handed relief pitcher. Hopefully, future information about Raley will be encouraging, as the Mets definitely need him to start the regular season.
